  • Probate Law Question?

    Hi All

    I would be most grateful if anyone can give any guidance on the following please.

    If as a Personal Representative with a grant of probate you (OK it's me!) find there is an issue as to whether the Estate has a beneficial interest in an asset, a house in this case, and there are ongoing proceedings that they are then joined to can the PR then claim for costs at the CPR Litigant in Person rate?

    By costs I do not mean their expenses I mean hourly costs (preparing for the case, writing statements, attending hearings etc).

    I've asked this previously regarding acting as a trustee but having got the original paperwork was joined to the proceedings as the PR of the Estate so wondered if the rules were the same?

    Thanks for reading,
